Ed Holmes and Fred Euringer
9 November 2014 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"The Medicine Man" is elderly Oneida Wenatchgo (Dixon Kenwin), his role as tribal leader usurped by younger rival Shenahbe (Fred Euringer, first of three), in league with Jake Collins (Ed Holmes, first of four) and partner Hans Stettner (John Gardner) to prey upon settlers by selling them wagon trains, then hiring the Oneidas to steal them back to tempt new victims. Hawkeye and Chingachgook rescue Wenatchgo from certain death before learning about Shenahbe's treachery, waging war on the white man in exchange for food, leaving Collins free to barter the wagons away to more unsuspecting travelers. The party of Jim Talbot (Eric Heath, second of two) has already fallen victim to the scheme, advised to remain in camp while Hawkeye enlists the aid of trading post authority Moore (Ben Lennick, first of three) by baiting a trap to purchase the Talbot wagon train from Collins, who senses what's coming and plans his own surprise. In the meantime, Hawkeye also intends to learn the connection between Collins and the once peaceful Oneidas. The medicine man actually doesn't play a major role in the proceedings, despite the episode title.
